I had read about it in Carlisle Living and had wanted to go, so when I found out this was where we were all meeting, I was delighted. I was not disappointed when I turned... read more

We stopped at The Lane Bar on our way back from a meal as we have been in before and our wives enjoy the cocktails. The bartender who served us took plenty of time making the cocktails with fresh ingredients and they were presented in lovely stylish glasses. I would definitely recommend a visit to try the cocktails or a... More

I love the lane! My and my husband go there quite often, and even though it's a five minute walk from the main night life it's definitely worth a visit. Love the wood burner and unique decor too :)

What can I say, beautiful inside, different areas to sit in, quirky, funky & fabulous. Fantastic staff & one of the friendliest bars I have ever been in. Vast choice of quality drinks. The garden in summer is amazing. Montys bar is a recent addition & it feels like a qualitly Gentlemans club, elegant, tranquil & classy. It no longer... More

This bar is a real gem and probably my favourite bar in the town at present. The only problem about this hidden gem is that it is virtually hidden and away from the majority of the bars in the city. If you take a 5 minute walk from the centre of town down Fisher Street you will find this diamond... More

I visited the Lane Bar with my boyfriend and two other couples after my brother insisted we go. All I can say is WOW! As it was a lovely day we got to sit in the nicely decorated beer garden and made friends with Monty the chug! The staff are so welcoming and make you feel at home. I love... More
